About the weather, another anniversary, and the work week
To quote Ricky Ricardo, It’s just so ridiculous.
Ricky was probably referring to his wife Lucy.
I’m talking about the Seattle weather, which started out warm and sunny this morning.
It’s cold and raining right now.
Oh well, it’s Seattle right?
I’m celebrating my 9th year as a Seattle resident on June 8.
It will be a bittersweet anniversary, because my mom moved to Seattle with me.
I’ve been reading Cloudia’s move to Hawaii, and thinking about traveling 3,000 miles across country, driving a U-Haul with a scrappy old lady sitting to my right.
We got to Seattle on June 8, 2000, and my mom died on May 27 2006.
In those six years, my mom got to know her four great-grandchildren really well.
The first few years in Seattle were really rough, and we both wanted to head back to upstate New York, where we were both born.
But as the years went by, my mom got sicker, and we were both glad to be around family.
Anyway, I’ll be writing more soon, about how I learned to stop thinking about my home back east and learned to enjoy my new home here in the Pacific Northwest.
And it’s a short week at work–only three days to go, then four days off!
So I need to take off for now, visit some blogs, and comment a wee bit.
